Risk Management

Cambodia Marine  has a qualified and experienced ‘Risk Management Team’ to assist owners in analysing their risk exposure and making suggestions for managing the same. This team is primarily responsible for placement of insurance to cover all risks including Hull and P&I; besides, the team also handles claims under the various policies and acts as the company’s in-house legal advisors. The Risk Management Team has good relations with major insurers in different markets around the world and owners can benefit from the team’s services to obtain attractive options to cover their insurance needs and reduce the overall risk exposure to their shipping operations.


Crewing

Cambodia Marine  presently employs Indian and Thai officers and crew on its vessels. The  Cambodia crew are sourced through in-house manning offices located in Cambodia, with qualified/experienced Master Mariners in-charge. Great Circle also has a crewing office in Cambodia to recruit Thai officers and crew.


If Owners so desire, Great Circle can arrange for vessels to be manned as per their flag requirements, including ‘non-national flag’ crew. The performance of the Officers and Crew are monitored closely by appraisal reports, to maintain the highest efficiency and sound working environment on board the vessels. Cambodia Marine  also arranges specialised training for senior officers through various institutions in Pupth. Besides, there is a system of continuous training onboard the vessels.


Most of the officers and crew onboard Cambodia Marine vessels are on repeat contracts and efforts are made to retain the same team onboard a vessel. This provides better control over the vessels’ operations and management, and allows better planning of maintenance and repair activities.


Repairs & Maintenance

Cambodia Marine  lays great emphasis on high standards in vessel maintenance and this is reflected in the low average downtime for its fleet of 11.5 days per year, including 8.20 days spent in planned dry-docking repairs and Special Surveys. Cambodia Marine runs a Planned Maintenance System for all its vessels such that all the routine repairs/maintenance jobs are done by crew onboard and very minimal work is left to be done by outside workshops or at dry-docks. This helps to reduce the repairs/dry-docking costs.


Sale & Purchase

Cambodia Marine  can assist owners with comprehensive pre-purchase inspections of any vessel they propose to acquire. The company can coordinate all aspects of purchase for a smooth take-over of the new acquisition, in most cases, from the same day! Great Circle has also successfully re-activated some vessels that were laid-up for a long period, and this service can also be offered to owners.


Cambodia Marine  can also provide full assistance to owners who wish to dispose of their vessels, either for further trading or for demolition.


New Building & Vessel Conversions 

Cambodia Marine   has a qualified Project Team headed by a senior Naval Architect. The Project Team was involved in the construction of 5 bulk carriers at a Korean Shipyard for Precious Shipping. This team can offer owners complete service in new building projects, from the initial design stage, through regular on-site supervision, till the delivery of the vessel as per contracted schedules. Cambodia Marine  can also offer full assistance in vessel conversions. One of the main projects in this area included the conversion of a tweendecker into a dedicated self-discharging cement carrier.
